for the power behind Step 3. We talk about surrendering to win. Well, Step 3 is where this happens (for this alkie). The obsession to drink to get drunk was lifted when and only when I surrendered my drinking life to my newly-conceived Higher Power. I gave up. I was done (Mary Christine wrote about this yesterday). Make no mistake, without that HP which began to develp in Step 2, the lifting of that obsession would never have happened.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
